Summer Term 6 Hawthorn Class newsletter

Most of our English work this term, will be drama – based on the play. However, we will still be writing and our work will focus on the book ‘Friend or Foe’ by Michael Morpurgo. We will be completing diary entries, letters and persuasive arguments. This links in with our topic on children in history – this term WW2

 

Maths

This term we will be consolidating our knowledge and doing many investigations. We will revise fractions; addition and subtraction; multiples, primes and factors; data and geometry and learning about the Golden rectangle and Fibonacci.

Our topic this term will be to look at the lives of children throughout the ages. We will put WW2 into context and look at the effect of the war on children, particularly evacuees. This will link in with our literacy book.

Other important information:-

SATs – Please congratulate your child on their attitude towards the SATs which they all took in their stride

PE – Wednesdays and Friday
